Cannot upload xlsm files on SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    I have a problem on SharePoint 2013 Foundation. I cannot upload xlsm Excel files  (excel with Macro) on a document library. I can upload through Windows Explorer but then the file becomes corrupted. Normal Excel and other file formats can be normaly uploaded.

    I appreciate every help.

  • Hi,

    I recommend that you can create a new site in this server and upload a new .xlsm file to a document library to test if it is the current site’s issue.

  • Hi,

    According to your post, my understanding is that you couldn’t upload the .xlsm excel files with Macro into a document library on SharePoint 2013 Foundation.

    In my environment, I tried to upload an .xlsm excel files with Macro in a document library. The result was that the .xlsm excel files could be uploaded, edited and saved.
    And, when I viewed these files in a browser window, I could edit them, however the Macro would not be supported in the browser window.

    I recommend that you can check if the “Define blocked file types” in General Security of Central Administrator includes the .xlsm file type at first.

    And, you can try to upload a new .xlsm excel file to the library or upload it into another document library in your environment.

    For more information, you can refer to:

  • The xlsm filetype is not on the list of blocked file types. I even tried to upload it as an attachment on a list but it didn't work. I tried to upload it on several Document Library but I always get the same error. Could it be a server issue.
